I don't think this guy is trying to scam anyone - he clearly states what comes with this package. He doesn't list print prices, so obviously you'd need to find that out ahead of time, but he's pretty clear about a lot of things on his site. And while he may not mention it, my assumption is that, as any other photographer that's offered a discounted or free wedding, that they're just trying to get their name out there and build up their portfolio!
------------FROM HIS WEBSITE---------- One dollar wedding photography package!
For a limited time I am offering a one dollar wedding photography package. Yes, I'm crazy but I'm an artist, so that's OK.
In brief, you pay $1 USD for my photography services on your wedding day, no time limit and no travel fees to destinations listed below. Now let me put it in bullets.
The $1 dollar wedding photography package includes:
- All day, photography wedding coverage with Eduardo Machuca
- No additional travel fees to common destinations, listed below
- Online proofing gallery for 3 months
- Wedding couple, family and friends can purchase individual prints, as well as other products.
- At your online proofing gallery, you, your family and guests, will be able to purchase prints at several sizes, in either color, black and white or sepia, with or without white or black borders. Also, you all will be able to order traditional wedding albums, flush-mount coffee table book albums, proof book albums, greeting cards, fine-art cards, DVD slideshow with your wedding images and other products. Payment is made online via credit card, and products are shipped to your address. Shipping charges may apply.
- When your online event is created, you must invite and pre-register before your wedding date, the email addresses of at least 20 (twenty) guests. All guests that pre-register to your event, will receive a $5 USD credit towards the purchase of products on your online proofing gallery.
- After the event images are released, after your wedding date, you all will have a 10% discount on products ordered within the first month; a 5% discount during the second month; and cero discount on the third month. Guests that register after the event is released, will also have these discounts but not the $5 credit.
- Your wedding date must be within this year 2007. I am not accepting reservations for next year.
- For an additional fee of $25 USD, one-time fee, you can have a permanent, private, customizable online web gallery within my homepage address, password protected if you like, to share with family and friends the images from your wedding day.
- High resolution images are released after one year.
- The bride referral program does not apply with this package
